Background Hex On Repl.it
RYANTADIPARTHI

Hi,

I just wanted to know the background hex color code of repl.it. You know, when you click on talk, and scroll through posts, the nice grey background. I wanted to know the precise hex code for that color for something, I'm making. If you could paste it in the comments, it would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Solution

It's #f5f5f5.

ColorZilla is very useful for these things.

That should work.

RYANTADIPARTHI

@19wintersp Thanks!

Kookiez

@19wintersp Is it me, or is the answer "layout" very similar to @RYANTADIPARTHI's "layout"? Something like that, I don't really know how to word it...

CodingCactus

@Kookiez lol I know what you mean. They do silly headers and excessive markdown when all they needed was #f5f5f5

Kookiez

@CodingCactus yeah, something tells me that @19wintersp's answer "layout" was intentional

19wintersp

@Kookiez It was satirical lol

CodingCactus

bruh why are they using a set lmao

RYANTADIPARTHI

@CodingCactus because the person who asked the question was using a set, and wanted an answer using a set.

Kookiez

@19wintersp i can tell

BhaskarRana

It's #f5f5f5
Below are its rgb and hsl values:
rgb(245, 245, 245)
hsl(0, 0%, 96%)
You can use this Online Color Picker for more information about color schemes and harmonies.

RYANTADIPARTHI

@BhaskarRana uh yeah, i already know. Thanks anyways.

Use a color picker. The one I use is this, it works very well! :)

RYANTADIPARTHI

@Bookie0 yes, but how would i get correct colors based on what a website, or something has. That's my requirement. i could search up any old color picker, and there's no difference.

CodingCactus

@RYANTADIPARTHI just use inspect element, dunno why everyone is saying to use these silly things

19wintersp

@CodingCactus It's a bit more convenient, especially for picking from gradients and images. Though yes, Inspect->Styles->Computed does work.

RYANTADIPARTHI

@CodingCactus i'm on a chromebook. Inspect it blocked.

Bookie0

@RYANTADIPARTHI wdym "based on what a website, or something has"? Any color picker should work..

Bookie0

@CodingCactus hum yea I guess so, I use the picker as it's more convenient and keeps track of the colors ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

RYANTADIPARTHI

@Bookie0 i want a specific color. not like guessing.

Bookie0

@RYANTADIPARTHI uh the color picker doesn't guess..

I use the eye dropper and it tells me:

is that what you want?

CodingCactus

@RYANTADIPARTHI i don't think you are understanding what bookie has provided, its like the eyedropper on any good image editing software

RYANTADIPARTHI

@Bookie0 oh, eyedropper, nvm. Ok, but the website's blocked for me anyways.

RYANTADIPARTHI

@CodingCactus i understood now. It's blocked anyways.

Bookie0

@RYANTADIPARTHI wdym blocked? the eyedropper (that I use) should be able to work fine on any website except on a chrome startup page. If you want the link, I can provide it! :)

RYANTADIPARTHI

@Bookie0 you already gave me the link on your first comment. It's blocked. my school computer blocked it

Bookie0

@RYANTADIPARTHI oof, well at least you have the color already! :)

Good luck!

RYANTADIPARTHI

@Bookie0 yeah, thanks.

19wintersp

@RYANTADIPARTHI If your school blocks all of these things, the next best option is to take a screenshot of the page, then eyedrop the colour from an online editor, such as Pixlr, or a dedicated tool like Image Color Picker or HTML Color Codes.

@19wintersp no, the link you gave works. Not blocked. But thanks for another option.
